A grinning skull complete with a top hat and monocle, a lucky horseshoe, and weathered playing cards appear prominently above the bar at Ink Eats and Drinks, helping create the vibrant, artistic vibe of a tattoo parlor that the casual American bistro so thoroughly embraces. On the walls, a street-art-inspired mural and numerous other tattoo-style pieces of art add splashes of color to a room marked by blackened brickwork and a gleaming wooden bar.
The chefs mirror the restaurant's energetically creative atmosphere by cooking eclectic American bistro food. Buttermilk-soaked chicken strips with spicy peanut sauce appear alongside orders of cornmeal-dusted fish tacos with corn salsa, as well as jambalaya brimming with salmon, shrimp, kielbasa, and saut?ed vegetables. To accompany this wide range of flavors, the bartenders pour pints of craft beer and pour delicious California wines. They also mix creatively named signature cocktails, such as The Dude, a manly combination of cinnamon whiskey, Kahlua, and cream served over ice cubes created by bare-knuckle boxing an iceberg.
